Sorry about your asthma attack. I would say what you can do but not over do it. Good luck.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm feeling pretty good, but all of your advice is sound, so I think I'll just try to stay active without putting stress on my body for a day or two -- just walking instead of a full cardio workout, etc.

I'll poke around in the videos and see if there's anything super low-impact that I can use to ease back in when I'm ready.

Thanks! :D

Yes! By all means start back slowly. Being fit includes caring for parts of our body that need some TLC. In your case, it is giving your lungs time to bounce back. Healing is a work just like working out. Little by little and you'll be back on track! You can do it!

I agree... start back slowly... Remember, this challenge is only for a month, but working out is a habit over a lifetime!

Sorry to hear about your asthma attack. When I have an asthma attack I start my workouts again slowly and slowly ramp them back up to where I was over 3-5 days depending on how bad the attack was and how I'm feeling. My doctor says that even when I'm feeling fine after an attack it takes my lungs 2-6 days to recover depending on how bad the attack was.

I would think modifying the workouts for the next 2 or 3 days until your lungs recover is a good idea, that will keep you on track but not put you back in the hospital, I hope!!

Hey, team! I'm doing my best to stay up-to-date with the challenge, but I've had a couple of setbacks during the month -- the most recent of which was a bad asthma attack/medicine reaction yesterday that almost had me at the ER. Obviously I was in no shape to do the workout video after that, and even today I'm trying to take it easy.

My question, then, is when/how fast should I be trying to catch up? Previously when I've missed a video, I've just done both videos the next day; but if I take two or three days off, I don't want to overwork my body by doing too much at once. I really want to stick to this challenge, so I don't want to just write those days off...

Should I just tone down the workouts for those days and do easier versions, or substitute alternate exercises? Should I wait and then pick up where I left off? What do you think would count as "meeting weekly goals" under these circumstances?

Thanks for your input!
